Halloween Musings

Why don't more people dress as everyday things?

do you mean like toasters or politicians?

I was a pencil in 5th grade. My sister me the best pencil costume I have ever seen complete with pink felt eraser and tin foil metal thing.

My only regret is that I didn't correct people when then said, "And you must be the Tin Man!" and quickly tossed two or three of those root beer barrel candies into my bag.

Needless to say, I was highly offended... Tin Man... I mean, who has ever seen a yellow Tin Man!

How very offensive indeed. I was talking to one of the kids in my beginning orchestra class and asked her what she was going to be for Halloween. "An evil spirit."
"How creative", I think. I tell her that sounds like a fun costume.
My pet rat, Rupert is going to be Remy from Ratatouille. Dan and I are dressing up as chefs to complete the costume.

My roommate went as a fly. A fly that smokes fake cigarettes. I don't know what's more common than that.vill

There was a kid at the garden last night dressed as a whoopie cushion. Strangers kept squeezing him all night long as he made his very best farting noises.

Never has there been a better everyday thing costume for an 11 year old boy.

I always thought it would be fun to go as a spatula.

define 'everyday'. i mean some people spend everyday in hell or under the viaduct or on the farm or in the red light district. so they are dressing up as everyday things. it's all relative.
